The seventh annual Newport Beach Restaurant Week hosted by the Newport Beach Restaurant Association is celebrating record participation of more than 70 local gourmet restaurants now through Sunday, Jan. 27. The annual community event offers locals and visitors a chance to both support their favorite Newport eateries, and explore new places of a broad range of cuisines, all while staying on budget.

During Restaurant Week when you dine at some of Newport’s finest restaurants, you will enjoy a featured prix fixe menu comprised of at least three courses, offering some of the restaurant’s most popular items. Lunch menus are priced at $10, $15 or $20 and dinner menus at $20, $30 or $40.

“I’m thrilled to be part of such a thriving culinary community. More than 70 restaurants will participate to build a greater appreciation of the extraordinary dining available in our City and recognize Newport Beach as a world-class culinary destination,” said Jim Walker, president of the Newport Beach Restaurant Association and proprietor of the legendary Bungalow Restaurant in Corona del Mar. His restaurant is offering a special three-course dinner featuring its signature salmon, priced at $30 per guest.

“Local foodies and visitors to Newport Beach can indulge in special gourmet menus which showcase the culinary scene and talent of some of the best chefs in the country,” said Sheri Drewy, restaurateur from Wilma’s Patio on Balboa Island. Her restaurant is offering a prix fixe menu for either lunch or dinner during Restaurant week, featuring a variety of its most popular Mexican dishes.
